Having read a few reviews, things did not bode well for our visit (2 days : city break). However, we didn't pay the premium rate, and thought we might get a bargain on a discounted laterooms booking....wrong!
As all have mentioned the hotel is very dated. When we arrived the outside was nothing like the professional photo, with an unkept garden and frontage. Still, we're not snobs and just wanted cheap and clean digs to rest our heads at night. We were in room 18, and were surprised that payment was requested at the start of our stay, before we'd even been given keys to our room (we know why now). The room was very small, old fashioned and worn. The sheets were clean, but really, this was a single room with a double bed plonked in. Cobwebs all over the window, and extensive mold in the bathroom. There was only one bedside cabinet, and no room on the other side to get into bed, meaning one person would need to climb over the other to get out of bed. The bathroom was a bit of a joke, other than the mould, the door was a sliding affair, with large gaps either side. It also swung upwards (quite amusing) if you pushed it the wrong way as there were no sliders retaining the base of the door. Paper thin walls with old fashioned wallpaper, no bedside clock, cramped space (never enough for two persons to move around) and a broken cupboard (which I fixed) and taps that moved out of position when turned on completed the room.
To sum up, its was cheap, but far from cheerful, and in desperate need of a revamp/redecorate and repair. Decent location in Salford, with regular buses to the centre, and enough parking spaces (off road) were the only good points I can think of. Breakfast was passable. If you've booked already, got it cheap, and just use the room for crashing out as we did, then at least you'll get by - but its still pretty damn poor all round and we wouldn't dare come back.
